Room at the Inn

Sponsored by the Sisters of Divine Providence since 1993, Room at the Inn is one of only three emergency shelter providers in the St. Louis County Continuum of Care. The shelter helps more than 200 people each year, including single mothers with their children, single women and two-parent or single-father families. The ministry collaborates with more than 50 interfaith groups to make needed services available, including case management to help clients identify and correct the causes for their homelessness; physical and mental health evaluations; substance abuse evaluations and counseling; domestic abuse counseling; life-skills classes, including financial management, parenting and job skills; and housing placement assistance.
